I'm not able to log in to the W3C blog, but have a few comments on the library linked data use cases.

1. Social Annotation
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Use_Case_Social_Annotation

Another example of an existing annotation system can be found at MediaCommons. 
http://mediacommons.futureofthebook.org/mcpress/plannedobsolescence/
The referenced document demonstrates annotation at the book, chapter, and paragraph levels.  

More use case scenarios:
- Annotations can serve as a form of scholarly peer review.
- Annotations to draft works in progress can provide suggestions and feedback to the author.


2. Digital Text Repository
http://w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Use_Case_Digital_Text_Repository

Metadata is not the only way, or even the primary way any longer, that text repositories are searched.  Full text indexes imply that all terms in the content should be linked to appropriate vocabularies or name authorities.


3. Mendeley Research Networks for linking researchers and publications
http://w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Use_Case_Mendeley_Research_Networks_for_linking_researchers_and_publications

More use case scenarios:
- Identify potential peers for collaboration or review.
- Identify related papers using semantic correlation, textual similarity, or shared topics.


4. Ranking Search Results by Popularity using Circulation Data
http://w3.org/2005/Incubator/lld/wiki/Use_Case_Ranking_Search_Results_by_Popularity_using_Circulation_Data

Circulation data should include eBook download frequency.
Publisher sales data could serve as a supplemental measure of popularity.

I am a member of the W3C LLD group and have had a hand in writing the report, and from that inside viewpoint I can say that it needs more voices. The review format of the blog hopefully makes it easy to make comments with a minimum of effort. This report, *IF* it does a good job of representing what we really need to do to move library data out of the back rooms and onto the front page of the Web, could be instrumental in both organizing our future and helping us secure funding so that we can do what we need to do.
